How are net calories calculated in Tari App?

In Tari App, Net Calories for any day are equal to:

= Calories You've Eaten -  Total Calories Burned 

If you have eaten less calories than you have burned, you are said to be calorie deficit. Being calorie deficit over time leads to weight loss. It is a general rule that if you remain calorie deficit by 500 calories per day, you will lose one pound per week on average. An example of this would be eating 2000 food calories in a day and burning 2500 calories in the same day.

If you have eaten more calories than you have burned, you are said to be in calorie surplus. Being in calorie surplus over time leads to weight gain. It is a general rule that if you remain in calorie surplus by 500 calories per day, you will gain one pound per week on average. An example of this would be eating 3000 food calories in a day and burning 2500 calories in the same day. 

In Tari App, on the Activity Log, you can click to see your Net Calories for the day.

To get a true reading of your Net Calories, you will need to wear a fitness device like FitBit or Apple Watch and log your food eaten for the day. Tari App will take the data from fitness device that advises how many calories you've burned for the day and subtract them from the foods you have logged.
